Three men tried to intercept his car
Zubair was driving the car himself at the time of the incident. He was going to turn right but the other car tried to intercept them by blocking their way. I took off straight instead when I saw there was a pistol in his hand, aimed at me, the former governor told SAMAA TV.I don't know if they were trying to scare me or do something else, that is something only the experts can determine, he said.Related: Nawaz Sharif’s guards attack SAMAA TV cameraman in IslamabadHe has informed Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and IG Kaleem Imam of the incident.South SSP Pir Muhammad Shah told the media that the incident occurred at around 11:30pm Tuesday night at Khayaban-e-Muhafiz.
